Genshin Impact: A Quick Guide in Cooking


Genshin Impact is one of the biggest free-to-play titles of 2020. MiHoYo’s all-out effort in terms of talent and investment has truly paid off as the game is hands down one of the most innovative open-world ARPG that offers cross-platform gameplay. For those who are new to the title, Genshin Impact offers a fantasy-themed open-world adventure with elemental-based combat mechanics. The game debuted on Windows, PS4, IOS, and Android on September 28, 2020, followed by the PlayStation 5 version on November 11, 2020. A Nintendo Switch version is also in the works, which is set to launch in the coming months.

Aside from its cross-play feature, the brilliance of Genshin Impact comes from the plethora of elements embedded within its core. After all, a game with a marketing and development budget of around $100 million is hard to dismiss. With that said, as much as we want to dive into its jaw-dropping audio-visual presentation and seamless gameplay structure that is a topic for another day. Today, however, we are going to take a quick overview of the mouth-watering-stomach-filling and ability-boosting activity in the game which is none other than Cooking.

Cooking, for the most part, is not a new feature in RPG titles especially to games that feature open-world gameplay like Genshin Impact. Cooking in Genshin Impact is not a complicated activity as long as you have a recipe. Players can cook in stoves located in cities. Cooking is also possible in campfires across the open-word area. The best part of cooking is that the dishes (depending on the recipe) are the boost it provides to the character’s attributes. With that in mind, we collected some of the best recipes that you can cook in the game.

Fantastic Recipes in Genshin Impact

Before we jump into the recipes, it is important to remember that the most important part of cooking is the effects or the benefits the dish will provide to the character. With that said, check out some of the fantastic recipes you can use in Genshin Impact.
